I'm in the midst of a heated debate about the use of Redshift v Spark with a
colleague.  We keep trading anecdotes and links back and forth (eg airbnb
post from 2013 or amplab benchmarks), and we don't seem to be getting
anywhere.

So before we start down the prototype /benchmark road, and in desperation
of finding *some* kind of objective third party perspective,  was wondering
if anyone who has used both in 2014 would care to provide commentary about
the sweet spot use cases / gotchas for non trivial use (eg a simple filter
scan isn't really interesting).  Soft issues like operational maintenance
and time spent developing v out of the box are interesting too...
